This glorious stacked sandwich is piled high with smoky bacon, crisp lettuce, and creamy pimento cheese for the ultimate Pimento Cheese BLT experience!
I’ve outdone myself today.
In sandwich form.
On a mission to recreate one of my favorite indulgences from a local lunch spot, these Pimento Cheese BLT’s made their way out of my kitchen and into my face. The happy dance that ensued was epic.
I couldn’t be happier with how these easy cheesy sandwiches turned out!
I used my zesty jalapeño pimento cheese recipe which I’ll include below with the sandwich, but feel free to use your family’s favorite recipe or even store bought pimento cheese if you already have that on hand. Though promise me you’ll try mine at some point! The fiery jalapeños mixed with the ripe tomato and smoky bacon make a scrumptious combo and you can make it as mild or as spicy as you’d like.
When it comes to BLTs I’m typically a purist. Don’t you dare try to BLAT me with sliced avocado or even so much as think of slapping some hippie hemp seed mayo on my sandwich. Just don’t do it, man. Bacon. Lettuce. Tomatoes. That is legit all I want out of this sandwich.
As I mentioned earlier, theres a little restaurant here in the Panhandle that’s open for like maybe 4 hours a day tops, 4 days a week. You’d think it would be impossible to stay in business but everything they make is so phenomenal there’s a line out the door the second they open. One of their signature sandwiches is a pimento cheese BLT and, even as a certified BLT-snob I HAD to try it!
Spoiler alert: it was amazing and I’ve been craving them around the clock ever since.
Now that I’m a card carrying member of team PCBLT it’s your turn!…

True life, I’m a speed reader.
The skill was taught to me during an SAT prep course back in High School as a means to help us rock the upcoming exam. I don’t remember my exact score (I tend to block out traumatic life events) but I will never forget the sheer agony of the exam. The test came and went, the twitching subsided, and the skill that was speed reading stayed with me forever.
Or should I say haunted me forever? I have a voracious appetite for books as it is and it’s not lost on me that my mom deemed it my most expensive hobby. I could rarely walk away from a book once it’s binding had been cracked and, as a result, she had to buy me series of books in their entirety, for fear that I would finish one and promptly decide to take my crayons to the walls or something equally as destructive if left alone.
Come on!! It was one time!
I read ALL THE BOOKS. And when that wasn’t enough, I re-read them.
My bibliophile ways have slowed a bit since having the chickpea and I long to tear through books like I used to. Even with my penchant for speed reading, starting a book before bed is a guaranteed all-nighter for me. I tend to slow my reading as a book starts to pick up steam and reveal all it’s delicious plot twists and OMG IS THE SUN SERIOUSLY OUT WHAT ON EARTH TIME IS IT!?
So I try to limit myself to the occasional all-nighter while the majority of my reading revolves around Dr. Seuss tongue-twisters and entirely too many Sandra Boynton books of which I’ve committed to memory and recite slam poetry style when I’m bored.
Then there’s Paul who will read kiddie books William Shatner style and leave me writhing on the floor in giggles. My literary dynamic has changed quite a bit but books are still very much a joyous part of my life.
Hi I’m Jenn and I like to ramble! Shall we make some granola today?…
